The Product: Pale blue gathered lampshades in hand-loomed cotton
Pale blue gathered lampshades in hand-loomed cotton handmade in Assam, northern India. The Tata Trust set up a project to develop and support women’s traditional hand-loom weaving skills in the region. These beautiful lampshades were commissioned by our supplier, Samarkand Design.
Sustainability and education are at the heart of Samarkand Design. The company focuses on improving the lives of each of the artisans it works with by building lasting and positive relationships based on the principles of fairness and social responsibility.
Elegant, tapered shades in larger sizes work well with slim-necked lamp bases such as ceramic, Asian-inspired shapes, bottle or urn silhouettes such as this turned wood, Pooky ‘Verona’ style. We sometimes pair these pretty lampshades with a simple, white metal pole lamp base from Nordic Nest for a more contemporary feel. Whatever you choose, keep the lamp base you pair with these pale blue gathered lampshades simple and unfussy. Allow the pastel textile to be the star!
